Lady Gaga at Camp fYrefly!

Throughout the next couple of weeks I plan to share stories and video’s from Camp fYrefly.  Today, I figured I’d kick things off with a little fun.  Seriously, I alternated between laughing like a mad woman, and crying buckets full of tears.  My cackle became a bit of an inside joke between some of the campers, and I’m sure my tears did too.  LMAO

One thing I have to admit I didn’t expect was the huge level of talent amoungst (or is it amongst?  Right or wrong, as a Canadian I’m inclined to throw a U into almost every word with an O) the campers.  Sure, I expected there to be talent, but every single young person I met seemed to have some absolutely amazing talent.  Some were incredible writers, some were musicians, some were visual artists, comedians, improvisational actors, and some…  like Jesse, were dancers.

Jesse honestly blew my mind.  Holy crap.  Some talent scout needs to snap this boy up and make him sign a contract thus making them both rich.  And then I can say “I knew him when…”  Watch this video, and you’ll know why.

I wish I’d had one of my good cameras with me, rather than just my iPad.  But hey, talent is talent – regardless of how mediocre the equipment it’s captured on.  And Jesse?  He’s nothing but raw, unbridled, passionate, dance.  And all that energy, ready to burst out at a moments notice, is hidden beneath the most unassuming, gentle, sweet, and soft-spoken exterior.

Video Removed at the Request of the Camp fYrefly Founders. 

Sorry Everyone, You’ll just have to take my word for it.  Jesse is awesome!
